What kickers should you stream this week?
Here are two kickers to consider streaming in your Week 4 lineups.
Randy Bullock, Tennessee Titans (at NYJ)
After not playing in Week 1, Randy Bullock returned in Week 2 to hit 4 of 5 field goals and 3 extra points. Then, last week against the Colts, the Titans kept scoring touchdowns so they attempted just 1 field goal, which Bullock hit.
When we stream kickers, all we’re really looking for are teams that are favored, preferably at home, and in good weather.
The Titans are touchdown favorites on the road against the Jets this week. Even though they’re not home, this is the type of matchup we look for when streaming kickers. The Titans may be without their top two wide receivers, A.J. Brown and Julio Jones, which could set the stage for them to drive and stall — exactly what we want.
The Jets surrendered 4 field-goal attempts to Brandon McManus last week. The Titans should have no trouble moving the ball this week and getting into scoring position. That should give Bullock multiple opportunities at field goals, making him a great streaming option.
Greg Joseph, Minnesota Vikings (vs. CLE)
The Vikings are at home, which is great, and they play indoors, which is also great. They’re not favored, but that doesn’t overly concern me as the Vikings’ offense has been prolific to start the 2021 season.
Greg Joseph attempted 3 extra points and 3 field goals in last week’s win over the Seahawks. This week, they face a defense better than the Seahawks’ defense in the Browns, but still not an overly imposing foe that would stymie offensive production. This is a great spot for Joseph to attempt multiple field goals. Stream him if you need him.
